The Ralph Uwazuruike-led Biafra Independence Movement (BIM), has warned Nnamdi Kanu & agitators on their plan to boycott Anambra November 18 Election, insisting that the election will hold.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo President-General, Nnia Nwodo had urged the Igbo to be more committed to the ongoing voters registration exercise, as he expressed concern over the disposition of some Igbo to the exercise.
He also called on INEC and the authorities to ensure that nothing hinders the success of the exercise.
BIM, on its own part highlighted that any attempt to disrupt the Anambra governorship election would hamper development in the state, stressing that BIM has embarked on sensitisation campaign across the 21 council areas of Anambra State to urge the electorate not to be deceived by the antics of those who don’t mean well for Biafra.
Addressing a press conference in Aba, BIM Leader, Abia South zone, Okporie Nkama, said his members, who are registered voters in Anambra State, have been directed to come out en masse and vote a candidate of their choice, to ensure continuation of democratic governance in the state.
“BIM is not in support of any individual or group calling for the boycott of Anambra governorship poll on November 18. When you boycott the election, you are selling your right and giving a chance to those who don’t want of Biafra to take over.
“Anambra election cannot affect the actualization of Biafra. Anyone calling for boycott is anti-Igbo. We have embarked on sensitisation visits to the 21 local government areas of Anambra State to urge people not to allow themselves to be deceived.
“There will be anarchy in Anambra if the election does not hold. As an organisation that practises non violence, BIM warns Ndi Anambra to ensure that they turn out en masse to support their choice candidates during the election.”
